First - see that the first fall of rider is under the section "faults at obstacle" meaning fall occurs at an obstacle.

Second there is a zone around the fence - I believe more detail in the rule book.

Either way the rule clearly says rider can dismount voluntarily or involuntarily on course without penalty as long as it is not at an obstacle. See bold.

2011 Rules
P.40
4. PACE AND DISMOUNTING. Between the start and finish, competitors are free to
Choose their own pace. They must be mounted to pass all red and white boundary flags. Dismounting as a result of attempting an obstacle, whether voluntary or not, is penalized in accordance with EV141.1.b. Elsewhere on the course, competitors may dismount without incurring a fault, other than possible penalties for exceeding the optimum time.

Ah I see now. That one word. Faults at Obstacles just didn't register in my head. Thank you! So a fall unrelated to a jump Does not have any penalty? Thanks for explaining that!

No there is no penalty, but you will probably get time faults !

My friends daughter came off just before the 3rd jump and she was made to get off the course. That's as Australian rule though. I can only assume that it would be the same.
